A few more thoughts on the Thanos Imperative.
So I just wanted to say a few more words about the whole Thanos Imperative mini-series, since I recently finished the start of it, and it deserves more then just three sentences. The idea of an alternate universe where death has lost, and there is only life(the Cancerverse)is really inspired, and the fact that the co-writers(Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning)picked the alternate version of one of Marvel's most vaunted heroes(Captain Marvel!)to serve as the leader of the Cancerverse was a stroke of genius! So basically this series is pitting Death(led by Thanos)against Life(led by Mar-Vell), with the added twist being that LIFE is the force of evil!!! The Cancerverse, with no concept of death, is overcrowded with life to the point that it is nearly bursting at the seams, and is full of bizarre creatures and mass stagnation, and seems to be a truly horrid place. I can't say enough good things about this concept, and I'll be MORE then looking forward to seeing how this storyline plays out.Awesomeness!!!
